Randy Mandell & Yoram Bauman: The Carbon Tax and the TPP [web]


Publication date 2013-09-05
Topics Documentary
350 Seattle invites you to an evening of education and comedy about the Carbon Tax, and the dangers of the TPP.  Randy Mandell fills us in on the machinations involved in the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), a NAFTA-style trade deal being negotiated in secret.  The TPP involves 12 countries along the Pacific Rim and will have profoundly negative impacts on existing environmental and labor protections.  Learn how the TPP, if signed, would strengthen multinational corporations and “investors’ rights” at the expense of workers, taxpayers, and the environment. The TPP must be stopped if we are to have any hope of keeping fossil fuels in the ground or passing policies to promote clean energy use and protect the environment. This information is particularly important at this time because in the next few weeks the Congress is scheduled to vote on whether or not to give the administration fast track authority which will make the TPP impossible to amend or even scrutinize and if passed, and the contents of the agreement will only be available after 4 years.  Like the WTO, the contents of the TPP are secret even to our congressional membership and are only available because parts were leaked.  See: http://www.citizen.org/TPP Following that you will hear the world’s first and only Stand-Up Economist perform one of his hilarious routines and then talk about carbon taxes and how they can work for us. Yoram Bauman describes how a carbon tax-shift lets us tax the bad stuff (carbon emissions) instead of the good stuff (buying and selling things we need).  He’s helping to organize a campaign to make a carbon tax a reality in Washington State– hear the latest about the campaign and how you can lend a hand!
